Isaiah's Feel Better Friend

Back in January, a kind woman posted a comment to Isaiah's Facebook page letting us know about an organization that she volunteers for: Feel Better Friends.  Volunteers from around the world create customized crocheted dolls for children with serious health issues who feel may "different".

I checked out the website, shared it with a few of my support groups, and requested a doll for Isaiah.

We were quickly introduced to Isaiah's volunteer crafter, Terri-Lee, via email.  Terri-Lee lives in Australia.  She is a master crafter as she crafted a Mini-Isaiah and sent him off in just a few days!

Terri-Lee even made Mini Isaiah's arms and legs shorter at my request. :)

Mini Isaiah decided to tour the world...or hide in a post office it took him some time to get to our house from the other side of the world.

Actually, we had thought he was lost forever, and Terri-Lee let the administrators of Feel Better Friends know that he was missing, so they assigned us with another sweet volunteer, Bobbi, who was ready to create a new doll for Isaiah.

A few days after she and I emailed, Mini-Isaiah appeared in our mailbox. (and I immediately emailed Feel Better Friends and Terri-Lee.

Mini Isaiah was worth the wait.  Isaiah thinks he's hilarious!  He loves holding his hand and rubbing his hair.  And guys, he even has a tail just like Isaiah's Donald Duck halloween costume (that I of course had to pull out for this photo opportunity).

Isn't this just the coolest?  If you know a child facing a major health condition that could use a pick me up, please share Feel Better Friends with their parent(s).  They are a wonderful organization spreading love and happiness through talented, loving volunteers.

Thank you Terri-Lee and FBF for Isaiah's Feel Better Friend.
